    Oscar Pistorius: South Africa gears up for its 'trial of the century'

    (CNN) -- He was one of South Africa's favorite sons, an amputee track star who defied all the odds and sprinted into the hearts of millions during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. She was a staggering beauty with the brains to match, a law graduate and model whose star was on the rise.

    Admin/Mod Note

    Thank you all for participating! This forum has a special dynamic - good sleuthers, intelligent discussions, though provoking opinions expressed ... it makes it enjoyable to read & moderate. We sincerely thank you for that!

    The last few days I've been disappointed to see a few exchanges begin to deteriorate :no: - escalating from a lack of tolerance for differing opinions. Of course opinions are going to differ when a bunch of intelligent, independent thinkers have a discussion. That's a good thing, not a bad thing. I understand the passion but the purpose should not be to change anyone else's mind. Respect your fellow posters and make a conscious effort to be tolerant. Please note that passive-aggressive, snarky, personalized posts will not be tolerated and, beginning immediately, will result in a loss of posting privileges.

    Thanks all. :heartbeat:

    Thanks, Bessie, Harmony, and Lisa Salinger (smile),

    Let's see if OP can take his charm to another level... he could win over this judge...

    Just read a comment on twitter that the defense might make a motion for Oscar to testify later in the case, and State will oppose it.

    Why is there an order that he not be televised? Was this his request?

    Not sure, but there is an application to broadcast today's proceedings before the court.

    Really surprised we didn't hear from Reeva's BFF Myers... or from Warren, the ex. A boost for OPs defense... little there I guess.

    Still, without a doubt... this guy knew what he was doing... he's a POS and needs to pay the price for constantly having a hard on for pulling the trigger... makes him feel powerful... like a normal person... couldn't let the public know he was dumped by south Africa's own emerging model... knows the feeling of heart break-- could not live through it... he had set up the plan months before... even planting a tweet about an intruder... no matter what he would get away with it... he had pulled off the impossible before, this would be yet another challenge, one he would win... and move on...

    Let's Rock!

    Could he really have set it up months before? My understanding is that they had only been going out together for 3 months .. have I got that wrong? It seems more like a 'heat of the moment' thing to me.

    True- I think it was within the sphere of time when he met Reeva. He knew what he was doing... imo... def - he did not plan on shooting her for months.. it was just one of those things. Valentines day- breaker breaker... so his plan could continue with the protection clause.

    The head of the police's Investigative Psychology Section, Col Gerard Labuschagne is also in court. Barry Bateman states that he will study Oscar's body language, reactions and responses to questions which will assist Nel in cross-examination.

    Expanding on my post from the previous thread... Here are some other little things that jumped out at me from the day 15 data discussion...

    Roux wants to show that Reeva had an interest in cars, along with Oscar. He mentions her browsing history, emails, etc that show this interest.

    I think this is important because when Nel was presenting the iPad evidence, one of the links that came up in Oscar’s browsing history had to do with cars. Oscar’s expression in the dock was very peculiar. Nel was very vague and Roux barely wanted to cross examine on this – his only question to the expert, Michael Sales, was whether or not he knew who was using the iPad at the time. There is something that they found on that iPad that is not good for Oscar.

    Next... Reeva's last GPRS activity...

    At 20:04:00 – GPRS connection for 17 seconds

    At 20:04:17 – The last GPRS of the day – 41,029 seconds (over 11 hours)

    Moller reminds the Judge that if she would like to see the content of those GPRS connections (potentially WhatsApp chats) all she has to do is look back at the data downloads that he provided yesterday to see what the specific content was for those times. Nel specifically asked Moller to point this out to her. He wants her to see what Reeva was doing during those GPRS sessions.

    20 south African minutes~~

    Are we confirmed- that OP is up first...? or maybe later in the day???

    Roux is probably jumping rope n the tea room.. getting pumped... taking his speed.
